Well, it happens rarely that Apple show some positive point of view for it’s competitors. But this rare thing is happening right now. Bosses at Apple are providing a positive view for iPad rival, Kindle Fire. Instead of feeling challenged by the tablet, the company is saying that it’s a good thing.
According to a report provided by Business Insider, Barclays analyst Ben Reitzes met with Apple CEO Tim Cook and CFO Peter Oppenheimer. Both of them believe that Kindle Fire will prove disruptive among the Android tablet market.
Priced at $199, Amazon’s Kindle Fire is much cheaper than any other Android powered tablet and is due to hit the U.S. market on November 21. Although it’s an Android powered tablet, still it’s not quite same as other Android Tablets. As Business Insider’s Jay Yarow says, Android Apps will look differently on Kindle Fire than on other Android tablets. Android Developers may need to create a separate version of their apps for Kindle Fire.
Apple believes that fragmentation caused by Kindle Fire can very well drive consumers to iPad. When Kindle Fire was announced, several analysts provided their point of views and comparisons between Fire and iPad. The general result of those analyses was this that Fire may become very popular, but it may not replace iPad.
